CHANEL 2009 Holiday Collection.

The CHANEL Makeup Studio takes a flight of fantasy this holiday season, inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s fascination with the brilliant plumage of exotic birds. Their lush beauty is captured in an enchanting holiday collection with shades of flamingo pink and peacock blue – accented with shimmering tones of green-gold, copper and teal.



Shimmering Tweed Highlighter - $60
Holiday beauty furthers the fantasy with three delicately ‘woven’ shades of shimmering colour for cheeks and décolleté. Gold, bronze and copper tones cast a natural luminous glow on skin to highlight and heighten a festive effect. Unmistakably CHANEL: the powder’s imprinted surface, inspired by the iconic tweed.

The latest LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow is Bird of Paradise, a fun, bright palette consisting of aqua, yellow, green-gold and copper shadows. For a sexy, bold look, line the eyes with LE LIGNE DE CHANEL Professional Eyeliner Duo in Celadon-Lame, a striking duo of green and black.
